Cottage. Late C15 origin, extended C17. Orginally of open hall form with cruck trusses. Plastered cob walls on brick and stone base. Thatched roof. Brick stacks - one rendered. One storey and attics. Front wall buttressed. Modern ledged door under pentice with stone slate roof. Ground floor has four casement windows with glazing bars. Attic has three dormers with casements with glazing bars.

Internally, the house was originally open to the roof, three bays long, with true cruck trusses, parts of which survive. An intermediate floor was inserted in the late C16. The western room has deep chamfered ceiling beams and a chimney stack of this date. The eastern room and end chimney stack were added in the late C17.

Traces of a bread oven or curing chamber adjoin this stack. Both stacks have large open fireplaces - now partly built up - with oak lintels.
